Does not sync


stivshekar
Try to do a full restore in disk mode.
1. Put your iPod into disk mode - Press top and center buttons simultaneously until you see the Apple symbol come up. As soon as you see the Apple symbol press the center and bottom (play) buttons simulataneously until you see a check mark. After this try to restore in iTunes. We recommend manually managing music versus syncing. But that is a personal choice. If you sync then going to another computer will wipe your music.
2. If 1 doesn't work try removing all USB devices from your computer and reboot. Then restore again either normally or disk mode.
3. Let us know, if you need further assistance.

Your computer sees your iPod as another disc drive. When you sync check you have not got "enable for disc use" checked on the summary page. If it wont sync movies right click on it and select "convert selection for iPod", make sure you have selected the movie on the movie tab (or select "All Movies")
